This post is part of a sponsored collaboration with Walker's Shortbread.
Spring is here and that means it is time to pack dinner into a picnic basket as often as possible and head out for an al fresco meal with the kids! We usually take cookies along on these occasions for dessert, but last week, I wanted to take that to the next level of delicious.
Walker's Shortbread is the natural choice for my family, we love the buttery flavor of shortbread, but spring days require something super special; after all, we are celebrating the return of feathered friends, the sunshine, and shorts, and we are sending our bulky coats back to the closet from which they came!
Within a few moments time, I took our favorite shortbread to new heights with 3 simple ingredients and very little effort! To make our picnic a nutty sweet affair after the meal had ended I offered my family Walker's Shortbread dipped and drizzled with white and dark chocolate and coated in crunchy walnuts. This was maybe the best ending to a meal that I have ever whipped up in under 3 minutes!
To begin, I laid out parchment paper and spread my shortbread fingers on it.
Next, I melted a fine brand of White Chocolate and a decadent brand of dark chocolate. I drizzled the melted goodness directly on to my shortbread.
Next, I sprinkled on chunks of raw walnuts and followed up with the dark chocolate.
Allow this to cool and harden for about 30 minutes. If you are in a rush, pop the cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Serve or store in a sealed container for up to 4 days.
